The Gippy Pages


Almost usable

Sep 22, 2004 | Web Design & Development | By Shawn Parker

This site is almost usable. Comments work, and small overall improvements and nicities have been added.

Site still remains xhtml compliant, much to my surprise. I guess I can still learn in my old age.

So I guess this means that I should start to use it for what I originally intended: as a way for me to just get my thoughts out and have a place to babble.

So, that should commence soon, but right now I’m still creating entries in phpMyAdmin – I need to create an entry page so this is easier and automated, and so I can do it from outside the home. I also need to change the URL scheme for the stories – right now they can’t accomodate multiple entries on one date, but that is easy to change and I should have that completely in place soon. Maybe even tonight.

Sometime after that I’ll see about putting in PuddleMonkey’s site so she can use it too. She’ll have to edit the look though – I’m not doin’ that for her. Well, at least make her beg a little bit 😉

Hm, that last bit makes me want to implement smilies…

I should go to bed, I stayed home sick today. I don’t feel as bad as I did this morning but I still don’t want to go to work tomorrow. But I think that is a normal feeling.

Update Jan 2019: For anyone interested, the Wayback machine has a glimpse of what this shanty-town used to look like. Bask in the glory of The Gippy Pages from 2004!
